I would like to put up a little reminder thread for all the ballers out there. First I should say....yes I am a retard. Admitting the problem is the first step to recovery. Little brief history....week before Nats' on the '16 vapor, I was skiing extremely well and looking forward to a chance to run some bouys with the MM boys and possibly medal. Looking back I recall my ski slipping out of my hand and hitting the ground (only about a 6" drop). This was just before nats while I was packing my ski. Nats was definately sub par ([email protected]
). Ski felt loose on offside- just wouldn't turn. Came home and tried a new boot set up, ski just felt different, I chalked it up to a different binding set up. Cottonwood tourney sat and Sunday, I switched back to old faithful boots and figured all would be well, Missed 39 round 1. Meh!!!!!! Frustration. Thank goodness Springs asked what numbers I was running- took out the calipers and checked it. Fin was short and shallow (perfect little adjustment from a drop on hard ground). It all makes sense now. Put the fin back to stock settings and proceeded to run [email protected]
last round Saturday. Sunday was even better with a 2, 1.5 & 4 @ 41. Now I will say that the conditions were as close to perfect as they have ever been @cottonwood
(95 air/85 water) and the Centurion was running both days-so everyone was killing it. Any way to sum it up nice and neat: Hello My name is Ward and I'm a total RETARD well on my way to 12 bouys of recovery. Looking forward to the rest of the fall tournaments on the new Vapor. Also looking forward to the BOS handicapped in October. Don't be a RETARD-Check Yo $#!T!
p.s. If you haven't entered the BOS cash prize tourney, get in while you still can. I need more people to help me make fun of @horton
Mr. Mom is Horton's favorite movie!
